fort 1

The company revealed that Fortnite developer Epic Games is moving its Cary, North Carolina, headquarters across the city to a massive shopping center.

By 2024, it plans to transform the 87-acre Cary Towne Center into its new home base.

Epic says the site will provide recreational and office space once construction is complete, “customized from the ground up to accommodate its long-term growth.”

The company says that this year it plans to begin construction on the new HQ site.

According to the Triangle Business Journal, Epic acquired the property from Turnbridge Equities and Denali Properties, who purchased it in January 2019 as part of a distressed sale after the mall lost three of its anchor tenants.

Turnbridge and Denali had intended to turn the site into Carolina Yards, a mixed-use development.

The plans for Epic to develop the property include the demolition of some of the current buildings on the site, a spokesperson said in an email to The Verge, but no further details were given by the company.

Declaring that proposals are only in the early stages. Epic will continue to work out of its current offices at Crossroads Boulevard in Cary, about three miles south until the new head office is ready.

In a funding round last summer, Epic raised $1.78 billion and has a valuation of about $17.3 billion.

Epic’s Fortnite remained immensely successful in 2020, with more than 350 million registered players as of May, even though the company is still involved in an ongoing legal dispute with Apple over payments in the App Store.
